This book has been sitting on my completed pile already for a while, but I haven’t been able to come around to write about it. I have a somewhat troubled relationship with this book. I genuinely like pretty much anything le Guin ever wrote.
Worlds are such well crafted, whole. But this time, I wasn’t completely enamoured with the premise, mostly just Soviets vs the USA but set on two nearby planets. Maybe I am just old enough to remember that competition, and it feels a bit too on the nose.
Next up on my books list is “Ancillary Sword” by Ann Leckie.
